All three, day one! Let's hope for the rest of the Ghibli collection on blu-ray in North America.

Oh you have got to be kidding me. Still no freaking Spirited Away?! Does Disney need a personal invitation?

Is there a political reason for this release or ??

Porco Rosso is the only one I'm interested out of those 3 movies. Glad to see that the "lower tier" Ghibli movies are getting release on the next wave.

I can't wait to find out how badly Disney screws up the subtitles on these!

They still using dubtitles?

Just bought the recent wave. Haven't had the time to see them yet. I've only seen The Wind Rises with subtitles as that's how my theater showed it. I find it amusing that it was released under their Touchstone name. Sort of reminded me of Princess Mononoke getting released under Miramax.

All three pre-ordered. I've only seen Porco Rosso out of these three, but I generally buy all of the new Ghibli releases..

They use dubtitles which means that the subtitles for the movie are exactly the same as the English dub script and not the actual literal translation of the Japanese language version. So basically some meaning gets lost or sometimes the subtitles don't match the words the characters say in Japanese.

So far Mononoke seems to suffer from this out of last week 3 Ghibli releases. I haven't seen Wind Rises and Kiki in English subs yet, but I have the movies.
